Take a journey into the past and present of scores of ghost towns across both the United States and Canada. Experience where history happened and where it still lives. These old towns are magical places, not just dried up, forgotten relics of Americana or Canadiana. These towns are more than empty storefronts, abandoned houses, forgotten schools and churches and desiccated cemeteries. The one-time boom towns were once filled with folks who were no different than you or me. They had hopes and dreams for the future. They came seeking a new life, but were thwarted by economics or environment. And then they left, they left behind a dead town.
Ghost Towns: Yesterday & TodayTM touches yesterday, celebrates today and resurrects the soul of a fragile, forgotten past.
Come - see where history happened.
Come - visit life interrupted.

“My son wanted to see as many ghost towns as we could during a short vacation. This was an excellent guide and information source and lots of good reading. BTW my son is 39, and it was a great vacation. This Guide provided us with all the information we needed.” (Glenn B. San Antonio TX – September 10, 1010)
“Picture your favorite cinema cowboy riding into one of these towns or your most daring adventurer coming upon them in his travels. These superb photos could be the basis for any number of adventure or action fantasies. It’s a great book for those of us who long to visit in the days gone by.” (Carolyn, Danville AL – December 31, 2012)
“A beautiful book. Very interesting. I passed it along to someone else. It is a “coffee table” book. A great gift.”
(Janice T. - April 11, 2013)
